This insightful animation from Moondog Animation Studios is a part of the Willy Grunch series. Willy Grunch “is a carefree philosophizing poet happily stumbling through life… He’s not so different than everybody else, but we get to laugh at our own misery at his expense,” and the artists behind this series hope to reach the hearts and minds of youth with a message.
This episode, titled “Star System”, demonstrates just how easy it is to get sucked into the values of the world and leave our own behind. It begins with a girl simply looking through a celebrity magazine. Like most of us, she desires the fame, beauty, and wealth of the stars featured in the pages.
Take a moment to watch how quickly things begin to spin out of her control as she chases after her “dreams”.
How do we rid ourselves of the impact that our society has had on our view of beauty, chastity, and modesty? How do we reclaim virtues that have been lost?
Join us for an online workshop with Cristina Barba of The Culture Project as she discusses these issues and more.
